This week's topic is  Highway

We follow the highways laid down by others before us.

The creators of the road may have been long-forgotten, but their efforts are key to the survival of our community.

The signposts are few; instead it is only the our skill and determination that bring home the supplies needed by all.

We work alone or together, tirelessly, selflessly, endlessly.

We are the women of the colony: the foragers, the nurturers, the builders, the soldiers
                                             and the Queen.


  1. Brilliant! Those ants certainly are skilful and hardworking.

  2. These tiny creatures are forever building new "roads" to reach and maintain the colony's food supply. Ingenious use of the prompt word for this week,

    Awaiting to hear your response to my endeavor.


Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to hear what you think.
